    Looking for a simple mp3 player

    Hello.
    This is my first post. But have been browsing the board for some months.

    I have a small "carputer"
    133MHz 16MB RAM
    Homemade PSU
    1GB HDD
    (no monitor)
    running windows 98, Winamp and a winamp plugin named Albumlist.

    I want to try Linux on this machine, but havn't found a mp3 player that would work like the Albumlist plugin.

    It needs to have hot keys for everything:
    Next Song
    Prev Song
    Play
    Stop
    Next Playlist
    Prev Playlist

    Do anyone know a program that can do this?

    Thank you.

    look at mp3blaster for a relatively full-featured console player (supports playlists, etc..)

    thank you for reply.

    I know about XMMS. but i was think more about a console player since there is no need for gui.
    But is there a plugin for it maybe?

    Mplayer is about the best command line player out there IMHO - and there are both windows and nix binaries available

    Yes, but mplayer is pretty useless (in a car) without 'some' sort of program. Even if it is just a bash script that will just "queue" stuff up.

    Try GQMPEG. Nice, simple, themeable player. It's just a fornt end to your cmd line mp3 player so oss or alsa doesn't matter.

    Perhaps you should explain what the Albumlist plugin does, so we can know what you're wanting.

    thank you for your reply.

    Albumlist stores playlists that I have made, instead of winamp only showing one list at a time.
    Albumlist gives you a list of playlists, then you select playlist by moving forward or Backwards in the list
    then after your selection winamp displays all the songs in "Winamp Playlist" window there you can select songs by moving forward or backwards using hotkeys.

    This all can be done using only the keyboard.
    So when I'm driving I can select my favorite playlist and then song within selected playlist all without the use of monitor.
